Cammidge House Wedding: A Vintage Tea Party

When Rhonda first described her Cammidge House wedding to me, I had visions of time travel back to the 1940s with ladies dressed to the nines in big hats, men in fedoras and bow ties, ornate china and stemware, colourful floral decor, a retro food truck, and a relaxed family atmosphere in a quiet country-like setting. When I day finally arrived this July and I finally saw Rhonda’s creation, my jaw nearly dropped to the ground. Her wedding was what I envisioned, but with so so much more! I kept thinking that if Rhonda ever grew tired of being a photographer, she could easily take up a career in decorating. Everything they planned for their wedding played to the theme of a vintage tea party – and it was brilliant!

Like so many weekends this year, the day started a little wet. But hopes were not dashed because most of the rain stuck around Vancouver and not Boundary Bay, where we were headed for the ceremony and reception. Luckily for us, we were only in rainy Vancouver for only a short time. Wedding dress hanging over window Wedding rings and flowers Bride getting ready in Point Grey Vancouver wedding photographer Bride puts on wedding veil Bride walks down stairs wedding photos with bridal partyRhonda was picked up in a 1940 Mercury Town Sedan (a car that reminds me of old Hollywood). This dusty grey seadan was the perfect colour for a vintage wedding near the beach. Driving out of the George Massey tunnel from Richmond into the suburb of Tsawwassen was like exiting a time machine. As we pulled into Boundary Bay, it felt like a different place with a completely different weather forecast.  Vintage car 1940s Blue Mercury for wedding Vancouver 1940s Mercury vintage wedding car Bride in vintage carJohn and Rhonda’s wedding guests arrived early for the ceremony. It was a circle wedding ceremony in front of Cammidge House, and they came dressed for a vintage tea party.

It was a big hit with guests. These were fresh handmade crepes by Chou Chou Breton Crepes. Chou Chou food trailer at wedding Food truck at wedding Chou Chou wedding food truck Chou Chou crepesBreton Crepes were served on vintage chinaware.
